"Slick"

When: Sat., March 14, 7-10 p.m. 2015

Evidenced by Los Angeles-based Institute for Figuring’s “Crochet Coral Reef” (on view at the Southwest School of Art) and local artist Margaret Craig’s haunting “Ocean Harvest” (on view at REM Gallery), ecology is a hot topic in the art world. Having grown up on the beaches of Florida, SA-based Sabra Booth counts the health of the oceans among the issues influencing her work. Inspired by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Booth’s project “Slick” has so far taken shape in the form of a satirical animation, a book printed on rubber gaskets and an installation that toured Texas in a vintage RV.
